This is the module of the first iteration. 6 pins, Breadboard friendly connection.

The main idea behind the project is quite simple: For each pin, one coil can move move some very small magnets from one end of a cylindrical body; at each end, two small pieces of ferromagnetic material will hold the pin in position. With this design, power is not needed to keep the state of the pins.
